THE ELEVENTH STATION

JESUS IS NAILED

TO THE CROSS

 

We adore you, O Christ,

and we bless you

Because by your holy cross

you have redeemed the world.

 

FROM SACRED SCRIPTURE

Gospel of Matthew 27:37-42

And they placed over his head 

the written charge against him: 

This is Jesus, the King of the Jews. 

Two revolutionaries

were crucified with him, 

one of his right and the other on his left. 

Those passing by reviled him, 

shaking their heads and saying,

“You who would destroy the temple 

and rebuild it in three days, 

save yourself, if you are the Son of God, 

[and] come down from the cross!”

Likewise the chief priests 

with the scribes and elders 

mocked him and said, 

“He saved others; he cannot save himself. 

So he is the king of Israel! 

Let him come down from the cross now, 

and we will believe in him.”

PRAYER

Lord Jesus,

you let yourself

be nailed to the Cross, 

accepting the terrible cruelty

of this suffering, 

the destruction

of your body and your dignity. 

You allowed yourself to be nailed fast; 

you did not try to escape

or to lessen your suffering. 

May we never flee from

what we are called to do. 

Help us to remain faithful to you. 

Help us to unmask the false freedom 

which would distance us from you. 

Help us to accept

your “binding” freedom, 

and, “bound” fast to you, 

to discover true freedom.

 

HYMN

At the cross her station keeping

Stood the mournful Mother weeping

Close to Jesus to the last
